Community Service

FEW’s community service activities enable FEW members to explore and utilize their skills for the benefit of others. We organize, support and facilitate community and charitable activities in Tokyo.

Mirai no Mori
FEW Community Service focuses on three key areas
1. Promotion of volunteering and community engagement programs.
2. Awareness raising of key issues both locally and internationally
3. Raising money for nonprofit organizations

To help facilitate this work, FEW has been publishing a Community Services Directory since 1995 where those who are interested in volunteering in the Tokyo Area can find plenty of information. Its latest edition (PDF), published in 2011, contains more than 80 organizations that welcome volunteer help.

FEW’s Community Service Directory has information on organizations, but here we offer some volunteering tips for those of you just getting started.

About the FEW Community Service Strategic Partners Program

Each year FEW selects two non-profit organizations according to the interests of the FEW Community to officially support through fundraising, volunteering and raising awareness as part of its Community Service Strategic Partners (CSSP) Program. Supported NPO’s are Japan-based and conduct Japan-focused activities. Many of the organizations FEW supports work with women, children and vulnerable populations.

Take a moment to learn about the incredible, important and brave work each of our current organizations is tirelessly carrying out. We invite you to join FEW in supporting and advancing the missions of these organizations.

For more information about our CSSPs or how to become a partner organization, please contact Tia Haygood at
